Review: WAITING FOR GODOT at CATASTROPHIC THEATRE

You are never going to see a more definitive version of this show in Houston, and CATASTROPHIC is the company to bring it to you.

Review: TAMARIE'S TOTALLY TRUE REVUE (PLUS LIES TOO!) at The Catastrophic Theatre

You see this year is all about truth and honesty, and examining what that means to Tamarie and her squad. Onstage there is a lie detector, and throughout the evening truths are revealed as are lies. And somehow highlights include dancing poop, Aristotle, an 80s PSA star, Tinkerbell, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, the world’s oldest cactus, and an army of drag queens to name but a few.

TAMARIE'S TOTALLY TRUE REVUE (PLUS LIES TOO!) Premieres June 23rd at The MATCH!

It's officially summer which means it's Tamarie Time! The Tamarie Cooper Show has, for years, been a cult hit and can't-miss Houston summer tradition.

Review: THEY DO NOT MOVE Enthralls Audiences at The Catastrophic Theatre

The Catastrophic Theatre is now presenting the world premiere of THEY DO NOT MOVE by Brian Jucha with the Catastrophic ensemble. There is joy to be found in this show because it brings its audience in, has them constantly take stock of new situations, causes them to reflect on the state of the world today, and strikes to inspire positive change.

The Catastrophic Theatre Presents THEY DO NOT MOVE By Brian Jucha With The Catastrophic Ensemble

The Catastrophic Theatre has announced the second production of our  2022-23 season, celebrating 30 years of making avant-garde theatre in Houston. 

Review: TAMARIE COOPER'S LIVE IN PERSON STICKY SWEET SUMMER SHOW at Catastrophic Theatre

Tamarie is a whirling dervish, a force of nature, and a comedic genius of a performer. She rises to the challenge of playing herself admirably, and it's the kind of role she was born to play. I doubt any other actor or actress in Houston could portray her quite as convincingly.

Tamarie Cooper's LIVE IN-PERSON Sticky Sweet Summer Show! Comes to Midtown Arts & Theatre Center Houston

Tamarie and her gang of merry misfits are returning to the stage—an actual stage—for a hilarious, irreverent, all-new musical extravaganza featuring an original score played by a live band and performances from some of Houston's funniest, wildest, quirkiest, sometimes raunchiest actors.

BWW Review: TOAST Goes Against the Grain at the Catastrophic Theatre

The world premiere of Brian Jucha's TOAST at the Catastrophic Theatre is a theatrical experience unlike any other. This deeply layered, highly surrealist adventure draws audiences through realms of reality, and varied states of consciousness, with a mashup of vignettes featuring current events, scenes from the movie Alien, stories about love, and a parade of flamingos. It reveals and revels in themes of loss, betrayal, love, and the meaning of life. TOAST is hilarious, absurd, mesmerizing, and not-to-be-missed.

BWW Review: FIRST SUBURB at The Catastrophic Theatre is All That and a Bag of Chips

The Catastrophic Theatre's production of FIRST SUBURB is utterly relatable and simply unshakable. From the open to the close, the show felt like a hug from an old friend. Set in the 90's, the show actively triggers your sense memory, and immerses audiences into the way-back-when. But like most memories of yore, things are seldom what they seem. FIRST SUBURB delivers an evening of levity and warmth. And on these cold winter nights, there is simply nothing better.

BWW Review: Catastrophic's CURSE OF THE STARVING CLASS Is the Most Beautiful Dysfunction You'll Ever See

Pulitzer Prize-Winnng Sam Shepard's CURSE OF THE STARVING CLASS displays the lives of the working-class Tate family as they navigate everything from suffocating debt, to teenage crime, to marital distress and back again. Checking the fridge for food (that is never there) is a regular routine-turned-ritual in this household that is deteriorating from the inside out. Shepard's play explores what it means to be trapped in the cycle of the starving class. He writes about a family cursed by an outside force, a force that leaves the individuals involved no option to dissociate themselves from the identifying feature of the cursed: the familial bloodline.

BWW Review: THE TAMARIE COOPER SHOW FIELD TRIP! is a busolad of fun at Catastrophic Theatre

This iteration of the Tamarie Cooper Show explores the leading lady's emotional baggage, battle against minor depression, and all of the discarded bad ideas that the troop has come up with when they were in line at 4am at Taco Bell. In other words, business as usual for Tamarie and her cast of usual suspects.

BWW Review: TREVOR Monkeys Around at Catastrophic Theatre

TREVOR is what the Catastrophic Theatre does best - funny and provocative work that has much to say about the human condition. It's fascinating it takes a celebrity-obsessed chimpanzee to deliver the most human and touching of performances thanks to the combination of Kyle Sturdivant's acting prowess and a whipsmart script from Nick Jones.
